Description

A £3 circulating coin commemorating the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Utrecht.

The Treaty of Utrecht was signed as part of the settlement in the War of the Spanish Succession in the Dutch city of Utrecht in March and April 1713. The Treaty was agreed on by several European states, including Spain, Great Britain, France, Portugal, Savoy and the Dutch Republic.

In the Treaty, Spain ceded to Great Britain “the full and entire propriety of the town and castle of Gibraltar, together with the port, fortifications and forts thereunto belonging ... for ever, without any exception or impediment whatsoever”.
